Groceries For Seniors

The Marion Senior Center is proud to be partnered with the Mid-Ohio Food Bank of Columbus in providing free boxes of nonperishable groceries to seniors age 60 and over, who meet income guidelines established by the FoodBank.

The boxes are delivered to the Senior Center for distribution to qualified seniors once each month.  This valuable service helps many seniors who are on a fixed income stretch their food dollars and in turn help their general well being. We do have some open slots, please call to sign up.
